Valladolid is located some 200 Km northwest of Madrid. Both cities are connected by freeway (A-6 up to Tordesillas, then take A-62 East to Valladolid). It takes approximately 2 h to get from one city to another. If coming by car, follow this map after entering Valladolid.

Departing from Madrid, Valladolid can also be easily reached by public transportation, either train or bus. Being not familiar with the latter, we have to strongly recommend the former. In working days, no less than ten trains connect Madrid with Valladolid, both ways. High-speed rail transport (AVE in Spanish) was introduced in December 2007. With the AVE, moving in between the two cities takes barely 55 min, which is certainly  remarkable.

Once in the Valladolid Train Station (called Valladolid-Campo Grande), the best way to get to the Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics is by catching a taxicab. Trip is short and fairly inexpensive. The Institute is only at a 20-min walk distance from the train station. However, if not familiar with Valladolid, walking is not recommended, as this is quite a rambling town.

Valladolid also has an international airport, situated some 10 km west, in the municipality of Villanubla. Although Villanubla Airport is very small, flights to a variety of  destinations are scheduled on an alternate day basis.
